The Berlin film festival, Europe's first major cinema showcase since the Harvey Weinstein sex abuse scandal roiled the industry, starts Thursday with 400 new movies slated and a controversy of its own brewing. U.S. filmmaker Wes Anderson will kick off the race for the Golden Bear top prize with the animated feature "Isle of Dogs," voiced by a starry cast including Bryan Cranston, Bill Murray, Jeff Goldblum and Oscar nominee Greta Gerwig who are all expected on the red carpet.The Berlinale's veteran chief Dieter Kosslick said it would provide a "forum" to bring about "concrete changes" to the treatment of women in the film industry in the wake of the #MeToo movement.He said he blackballed a handful of potential contenders because a director, screenwriter or star attached to the production was facing credible abuse allegations.Long relegated by Hollywood to the role of muse, victim or plucky sidekick, women look set to be in the driving seat in many of the Berlinale's highest-profile films.Billed as a feminist Western, "Damsel" stars Robert Pattinson as a bumbling wild cowboy hoping to rescue his quicker-witted beloved (Mia Wasikowska).
